The perspectives and needs of LGBTQ people should be routinely considered in public health efforts to improve the overall health of every person and eliminate health disparities.
WHY conducts a yearly survey of self-reported symptoms, health behaviors, prevention practices, and access to care. Following this baseline survey, we offer members additional surveys depending on their answers to the initial survey.
As a participant in WHY Queer you help to inform researchers of the unique lives and experiences of LGBT individuals, and why our voices should be properly addressed and heard within the scientific community. LGBT individuals experience health care and health outcomes differently, which is why it is important to share our unique experiences with researchers.
